Zamoiski Honored by Cable TV Pioneers

Washington and Lee alumnus John Zamoiski, of the Class of 1974, was honored last weekend at the 47th annual Cable TV Pioneer banquet, in Washington, D.C.

John is executive vice president for client innovation at Brand Connections, which acquired the Bottlerocket Marketing Group that John founded. He is one of the only inductees in the history of the Cable TV Pioneers who has never worked for a cable company, cable network or cable technology company.

Since 1966, the Cable TV Pioneers have honored individuals who have a minimum of 20 years of direct involvement in the cable industry and have made a meaningful contribution to the development of the cable communications industry.

John’s career in marketing has involved close ties with the entertainment industry, including such cable TV networks as AMC, HGTV, Turner Entertainment and A&E. Through those ties, he and his company have promoted some of the top cable television series, from “The Walking Dead” to “Mad Men.” We wrote about John’s work last July based on the attention his company had garnered for its promotional work at Comic-Con.

In a new release announcing the award, John said: “I have been very fortunate to work in an industry that I love for the past 30 plus years where I have had the opportunity to launch networks, promote programming and introduce groundbreaking services that have changed the way we engage with entertainment and each other.”
